Have any of you been through the list of all the groups on this site? It took me about an hour to read through the whole list of groups. I am glad I went thru the whole thing because there were some groups that I was interrested in joining like guerilla marketing. I did not know there was this gr...
        I have been and still am learning about having my own home staging and interior redesign business. By nature I am very reserved and shy. But running my own business has pushed me to the brink of doing things like I never would have believed.     For example, I sometimes have to initiate a...
Want  a good laugh? I just found a website that offered a do it yourself staging kit for $6.99. Sounds to good to be true(just being sarcastic). I ordered it just to check it out and to see who is doing this. It is a staging company from another country who actually do offer staging but they also...
I wrote a blog entry this morning on consultations and realtors. One stager mentioned to me that  when the owners of the home can't be there to do a consultation(like if they have moved out of state) then the consultation with the realtor becomes a bid. How is it a bid if you are the only one tha...
I have a question for all you. What do you do when the owners moved out of the home and the house is being shown by the realtor.

From everything that I am learning and reading about, getting your name out there and marketing your business takes up a lot of time. I would be so easy if we had publicity a...
Does anyone know how the point system for the blogs work? I have one blog that has 263 points while another one of my blogs has 230. How does this work? Do we get additional points everytime someone replies to our blog. I know my point totals are higher today than yesterday. Not that I am complai...
Did anyone read the blog today by Candis Hidalgo on the home page? It is called, "how not to post a blog."At the bottom of the blog is a link to go to Brad Andersohn's blog page. This blog is incredible! I blog I read was "Blogger starting kit". It takes quite awhile to read all the links in ther...
Does it seem to anyone else that some realtors don't deliver. What I mean is, I have had at least 3 realtors tell me that they were interested in having me stage some homes. One of them said how desparately I was needed at this house and I followed up with her, but all I am getting is the run aro...
What should I be doing or not doing in order to boost my business? Do I need to back to the realtors offices and drop off flyers which is what I did when I started my business 7 months ago or is there a better way to reach them? What do you guys do to keep promoting? I have gotten nowhere with pu...
